Each week we’re learning more and more of the scary capability of artificial intelligence (AI).
From writing academic essays and making investments to deep faking celebs in puffer coats to musicians singing songs in different languages – there isn’t a lot AI can’t do.
And now, thanks to cutting edge generative AI Midjourney, we have been previewed to what UK cities might look like in the future.
Midjourney has used AI to predict what the UK is going to look like in 2050 and the results are a little bit mind-blowing.
AI predicts that there will be a stunning ‘walking only’ bridge, which will be added to London in 27 years time.
The bridge will probably make it easier for commuters making their way through the hectic city.
Landmarks such as the Shard and Tower bridge look to be untouched, which is always a positive.
Next up is a photo of an updated Cardiff Bay, which AI thinks will be transformed into a high-end marina for yachts.
This could attract more tourists to the area.
Midjourney has also shared an AI image of the Glasgow Cathedral, which has controversially been given an updated look.
The roof of the famous building has been massively changed, with the addition of a huge dome being added to a majority of the roof.
We’ll have to wait and see what Scots think of that one.
Well, amid the never-ending capabilities of AI, it seems that the biggest tech chiefs in the game want to pause its development before it ‘gets out of hand’.
Billionaire, Elon Musk, has joined the likes of Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak and Skype co-founder, Jaan Tallinn, who have all signed an open letter demanding that all labs training AI systems stop for at least six months.
“Recent months have seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy ever more powerful digital minds that no-one – not even their creators – can understand, predict or reliably control,” the letter reads.
“Powerful AI systems should be developed only once we are confident that their effects will be positive and their risks will be manageable.”
They have called for researchers to focus on making sure the technology is accurate, safe and transparent.
The letter added: “Humanity can enjoy a flourishing future with AI. Having succeeded in creating powerful AI systems, we can now enjoy an ‘AI summer’ in which we reap the rewards, engineer these systems for the clear benefit of all and give society a chance to adapt.
“Society has hit pause on other technologies with potentially catastrophic effects on society.
“We can do so here. Let’s enjoy a long AI summer, not rush unprepared into a fall.”
